Doeren Mayhew2016_Best-of-the-Best_WEB has been honored for its 20th year by INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) as one of the nation’s best-managed CPA firms – an honor no other Michigan-based firm has ever received.

Recognizing the top 50 best-managed CPA firms in the United States, the annual IPA list considers more than 70 financial and operational metrics, including growth, profitability, income, productivity, accountability, client retention, professional development, staff retention, governance and much more.

“’Best of the Best’ firms are built on a strong foundation that consider the needs of staff, owners and clients as the three key constituencies of any successful business,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of the accounting trade publication, IPA. “They are not content to stand still. They plan ahead for the future of the firm and they anticipate the needs of their clients.”

Doeren Mayhew’s chairman, Mark Crawford, cites the exceptional dedication of its staff and shareholders as the reason for the firm’s ability to consistently make the list.

“Our shareholders and staff at Doeren Mayhew take great pride in being a ‘Best of the Best’ CPA firm.

Their dedication, commitment and great entrepreneurial spirit is what makes Doeren Mayhew stand out amongst other accounting firms,” Crawford says. “Looking forward, we will continue to strive to be a better firm for our staff and clients.”
